What books on self-esteem and/or parenting do you recommend?

(And please don't say Fifty Shades of Grey.)

I've read all of Nathaniel Branden's books on the topic. Been studying him for years. I'm looking for something different.

Check out Nathaniel Branden's The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem. You can't go wrong.

Don't worry, I don't think Fifty Shades comes close to the kind of book you are looking for :)

I've tried finding self esteem books, but so far none have really impressed me.

I'm an avid reader, and I've studied self-esteem for years. I've read all the great philosophers and thinkers who write on this topic. I guess I'm looking for something more geared toward parenting now.

Like, someone recommended The Five Love Languages of Children. I've already read that one. I'm looking for something more than that, if that helps.

 I'm curious, what exactly are you looking for?  Something for yourself or for someone you know or just because this is your interest?  : )
